It's amazing how much adjustment those repo pieces need just to fit.


I avoided working on some brands of cars because the parts were so bad.


They would have all been GM products wouldn't they? Laughing

GM was bad, BMC was the worst, especially when they became British Leyland.

Best part about Fords in the mid to late 60's & onwards, was they were painted in baked enamel. Real easy to use the grinder on. Holden used backed acrylic & it just melted into the sanding disk, pain in the arse.

Torana's were crap, probably the worst was the hatchback, not that the LC & LJ were any better.

I believe it's because the top coat has a high pearl content but is also thin.

Sure SP will provide the technical explanation Like

Not uncommon Pete, a white undercoat is often used to brighten a red top coat. From experience, avoid a grey primer if using a light coloured colour coat like springtime yellow as it can alter the shade.

The last major step on its way. Good to see.


I will someday think of something clever to say.

Yep the blue ground coat will give a deeper more even colour with less coats of base. The colour is a bit gutless just over the grey , so one last rub and we unleash Juggy with the colour

Hey, so I'm guessing it's now at Logan Village, how long will it be there for ? I need to get over and measure up for your wheel centres,

and yes it's looking pretty sharp
